    Is the resolution better than the native screen-shot feature of Windows? I rarely use that for text capture because of the resolution problem. I would need to use Chrome for FireShot I guess, since Windows 10 doesn't accept plug-ins/extensions. I'm soon to upgrade my laptop to 10, already took care of my husband's PC and tablet computer.

    Windows Print Screen feature is limited to just what you can see on your monitor. It does not print out an entire web page So if you wanted to print out an entire message thread, you'd have to do multiple print-screens. FireShot allows you to save the entire web page, whether it's contained on a single screen or requires scrolling.

    Additionally, FireShot allows you to save your screen grab as an image (.png for example) or as a .pdf, etc.

    Lastly, it is a browser extension that supports multiple web browsers and works on multiple operating systems (Mac and Windows).

    I whole-heartedly recommend you take a look. It's free and easy to install and remove in your browser. Give it a shot and see if it helps you do what you are looking to do.

    Best,

    M.

    Google Chrome is a variation of Linux isn't it? Not that I know anything about Linux either.

    If you Google Photo Editing App Google Chrome, you will find a large assortment of choices. I didn't examine any of them.

    Perhaps Picasa Will work, since it's a Google product and probably they've integrated it into the OS. But I'm not sure

    Chris, did you mean you are using the Chrome web browser or are you using a ChromeBook that has ChromeOS on it?

    sorry chrome is my browser, I'm using windows 10. It's a school computer so it can't handle a whole lot. I have a tablet that runs jellybean I think that has a couple photo editing programs on it.

    Chris, I use a free editing program called paint.net (that is not a web site). If you install that on your computer, I'm glad to help you with how to use it. Start a "conversation" if you want to do this and I can check if it works with Windows 10 and send you the download info.

    I don't know if it's my outdated Safari browser (10.7.5) or a bug with the new forum. Example, … if I go to the Main Forum, all unread posts/comments/replies are in Bold Print. After I read them and use the 'back button' to return to the Main Forum I would assume that the the Post would no longer be in bold print. But it is still in bold print! On topics where there have been a lot of comments/posts the newest comments sometimes have evolved (strayed) into other subject matter that has little to do with the title of the original post. This confuses me and many times I'll re-click the same title over again. Is it just me and/or my browser??? :(
    One feature that I think is really great…..when one clicks on the Bold Topic you are taken directly to the newest posts. :):):)

    When you use the back button, the page you went back to is not refreshed, so it would still be in bold.

    As far as comments straying from the original post, that's normal, not the browser. We sometimes have a hard time staying on point

    OMG, we're human! I was laughing pretty hard when the discussion devolved to feline urinary problems in one thread. Note, though, I resisted relaying our little Robin's brush with critical care. I think we can tolerate a little diversion now and again, yes?

    Cute kitten alert! I hope she's OK.

    Online forums somewhat reflect real life. It would be hard to imagine a group of friends having a discussion at a restaurant where the conversation does NOT evolve. I belong to a bunch of forums and any long thread does drift. We might frown on the opening post if it is about recipes for cooking eggplant (maybe it's only because I hate eggplant). We definitely frown on spammers.

    A comment came up that we needed an off topic forum. Years ago we had one and it went way too far and we axed it. And actually when the topic runs off, we USUALLY just leave it and it finds its way back . When it doesn't , we prune

    Isn't it ironic that \we don't allow spam yet it is my favorite sandwich. :D

    If anything, we should ban eggplant. :rolleyes:
